Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Worst cover ever

"Blackbird" is bar none the most hideous, cringe-inducing cover I ever heard the Dead do.

In fact, I never understood why the Dead attenpted any cover of a Beatles tune when the Beatles were one the best bands in history, if not THE best, when it came to pitch-perfect harmonies and clear as a bell vocals.

Dylan I can understand, and tunes like Baby Blue and Visoions of Johanna were fine for Jerry (as long as he could remember the words) but hearing Phil, Bobby and/or Jerry on tunes like "Lucy in the Sky", "Revolution", etc., was just brutal. Bad, bad idea all around.
